Meet the experienced and friendly doctors who make Vision Source Boerne the leading provider of vision care products and services in Boerne.

Meet Dr. Joseph Arrieta

I was born and raised in Florida.  I received my undergraduate degree from Valdosta State College and my Doctor of Optometry degree from Illinois College of Optometry.  After graduation, I proudly served in the U.S. Army in Oklahoma.  While at Ft. Sill, I served as chief of the basic training in-processing optometry clinic.  The time spent at Ft. Sill allowed me to practice full-scope optometry and hone my clinical skills.

I have been residing and practicing full-time in Boerne since 1999.  My wife, Dr. Huong-Trinh Nguyen, and I have a wonderful daughter, Elisia.  I am an active member of St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church in Boerne.  I enjoy watching movies and reading, hanging out with my family and participating in various charity projects with the local Knights of Columbus council.  I also serve with the state council of the Texas Knights of Columbus.

I am licensed as a Therapeutic Optometrist and Optometric Glaucoma Specialist, which allows me to treat and manage eye diseases, including eye infections, removing ocular foreign bodies, diagnosing glaucoma, diabetic and hypertensive eye diseases, and co-managing laser vision correction procedures.  I look forward to getting to know you and providing you with the best eye care possible.

Meet Dr. Huong-Trinh Nguyen


I was born in Saigon, Vietnam and immigrated to the U.S. in 1975.  We lived in Ohio for 5 years before moving to Texas.  I received my bachelor’s degree from Southwestern University in 1993 and my Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Houston College of Optometry in 1997.  I started my optometry career at a private practice in Waco.  After my husband and I moved to Boerne in 1999, I worked at various optometric offices as a relief doctor until I accepted a position at a commercial practice in San Antonio.  In 2002, I accepted a contract position at Brooke Army Medical Center.  I provided full-scope optometric care to retirees, dependents and active duty service members at BAMC and the Fort Sam Optometry Clinic for 11 years before joining a private practice in Kerrville in 2013.

I enjoy crafting, cooking, and spending time with my family and friends.  I am involved in various ministries at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church and also volunteer with Alamo Hospice in  Boerne.

I am licensed as a Therapeutic Optometrist and an Optometric Glaucoma Specialist.
